UsesFlint and Steel is the chief firestarter in the game and are much cheaper than Fire Charges. When TNT is right-clicked on with one, it ignites.
Flint and Steel can be crafted with one Flint and one Iron Ingot. In 1.7, its crafting recipe was changed to a shapeless recipe as long as both the items required are present and nothing else.
- Flint and Steel used to be obtainable by trading with villagers, but this was removed in Minecraft 1.8.
